Amazing isn't the word for it. I was dumbstruck when I read they were not taken into consideration the first time because they didn't have graduation ceremonies due to COVID.

I suspect the person who made that original assessment won't be involved the second time around.

No kidding. You're not interested in anyone from the Teachers of Excellence Program?
If they present their resume I am sure they would get an interview, however we were forced to downsize by the pandemic and fired 15 employees and have decided not to have pre-kinder (3 year olds) because many of the parents walked away with paying what they owed. We retained the teachers we wanted and are limiting enrollment until there is a better idea on the future. We already have about 600 children enrolled.
